Publication Year: 1935.

Marmolejo Group. Bonacossa, Boccalatte, Zanetti, Binaghi, and Gervasutti made an attempt on the Marmolejo itself but were forced back by bad weather and lack of time. The two latter climbers resolved to stay and make some climbs. On March 23rd they made the first ascent of a 16,280-ft. peak in this group which they christened Punta Campione d’Italia. On April 3rd these same two alpinistes made the first ascent of the Cerro Littoria near the Cerro Altar east of Santiago de Chile.
